No germs on the tip of a match head The flames clean down to the last thread Collected and catalogued Dispensed with impunity The black badge of savage laws You can forget herd immunity Thrust your dollars, clench your fists This pill will be god’s gift Trust our branding You’re in good hands Side effects and placebo truth Black-marketed therapy Convention slides into phony proof Devote yourself to this remedy Hand over fist, three convenient installments Untested, your doubts are dismissed Targeted ads will never relent Thrust your dollars, clench your fists This pill will be god’s gift Trust our branding You’re in good hands
Your grievances are compensation “Blood for blood” - got your fingers in the mud You lost your chance to taste it Wait or waste the things you claim to love ...the things you claim to love Take their face and wear it Fake the taste and pay it Late to blame, transparent Wait or waste, disparriaged Sadists by belief, mistakenly reprieved Red by morning light, soaked and dead by night Live in my shell and find your warmth Red by morning light, soaked and dead by night Live in my shell and find your warmth
In tearing silence you lost count of the lies that lead you where nothing now stands between you and the end Discarded carrion they served your purpose until they had none, used as though lifeless before you arrived Time has come to face all that you which have done Nowhere else to run Death is hunting you, and what you sought still eludes Line up the dead and name them one by one They served their purpose until they had none Grasp among the ashes for some small hope but only cold earth lies below When you find yourself alone in the places you fear most Know you wrought with your own hands the fate that brought death close Beneath the bones and the dirt and further still you deserve as your body decays there is just one thought that burns who will remember not the broken or lost not the dead, their distraught Only the ones abandoned waiting here for you in the dark In the places you fear we wait for you in the dark Brought to your knees incapable of abandoning (the dream) Even falling, you still reach as though it keeps you alive Slip from reality and belief is unravelling In denial of the fallout you had foreseen
Confinement blessed silence So long to wait to be free of your voice How soon you forget what brought you here The path away feels the same I got what I came to need, and you won't be the last of your kind This place knows a sense of departure Dust will reclaim possession Withered stillness another vacant room In this ever expanding tomb The empty voice that promised eventual decay Cling to light with faint but fading hope Seclusion's tiresome pull holds sway Held so tightly out of fear Compelled to reach but never near I have what I needed here, and you won’t be the last of your kind This place knows endless departure It echoes of dismissal Dust will reclaim possession, awaiting no one’s return You’ll soon forget why you came The path away always feels the same Closer to vanishing, but from where… Withering stillness, another vacant room - in your ever expanding tomb Closer to vanishing, from a vacant stare Broken stillness, another empty room - in your vast seclusion


Two heavyweights from the emerging, underground industrial metal scene combine forces and present the “Possession Therapy” EP to kick off 2021. Rooted in discomfort, moody disgust, and aggression, each group maintains a deliberate focus towards songwriting and storytelling in this 4 track catharsis. This is the launchpad for a hailstorm of 2021 releases from all artists involved, but “Possession Therapy” is definitely the most special to each band.

Re:Mission Entertainment

Dread Risks is the boil-over point where anxiety and sinking thought patterns plateau and reside in relentless but silent panic.

Dream-state consequences far exceed the true determinations.

The soundtrack is an accompany piece to emotional submission, implosion, and unrealized vengeance.
